Utilitywise are now offering all FMB customers the opportunity to access three services for free:

Bill Checking

Let our experts check your energy bills to make sure that everything is as is should be. Our staff will check for out-of-contract rates, look over your VAT, CCL and KvA. This is the first step in our service and allows us to examine your utility usage and offer advice on how we can help you to lower your consumption and associated costs.

An Energy Health Check

We input your energy usage information into a database and compare your energy consumption and spend with like-for-like organisations. Many businesses are unaware how their energy usage compare sot similar businesses, so a simple check is the start of a process to create a Utility Management Plan.

Utilitywise helpline

Help and advice on energy and water when you need it. Call one of our experts during business hours Monday to Friday to answer your questions about utilities: want help understanding your bill, confused about energy legislation, want us to check if your DEC and air-conditioning inspection is up to date, worried about ESOS compliance, want to find out more about the latest energy market movements – we can help.
